Hey everyone,
Long time lurker of this thread. But now im looking to build a very specific rig system. You may think its ridiculous as its not automotive related.
I want to build one strictly for my bicycle. I have a heavy downhill bike and think a rig shot would look insane. But any suggestions on equipment?
I'll be using my xsi, removing the grip and using an 8mm fisheye as its super light and wide.

oh, I figure the most difficult part will be balancing it all as it will be obviously heavier on the one side for those side profile shots, but I'm not too concerned with that at this point.

Make a rig yourself with fasteners maybe? Clamp it on to your frame some how so it is steady, don't really need to be going that fast.

Should be easy,....a couple of clamps & a length of alloy tube,....
wont have to be very long either....8-10 feet should be enough..
Vibration may be your enemy.....

I need to stop doing rig shots in the cold, more time to set up and make sure it didnt shake would have been nice, but by the end of it I couldnt feel my hands. I tried out a mild split-tone processing on this one

Nice shot. I cant stand when people edit a plate like that I feel it takes away from the image.

Give this a try:
Use a selection tool to isolate the plate characters > use the eyedropper to select the 'average' background color of the blank portion of the plate > color in the selected area with this color > with the selection still active, apply a Noise filter. Adjust the noise level to your liking so that it appears to match the surrounding area.

Just a quick way Ive come across that yields quick clean results. I am in no way trying to put down your work just offering a little advice.

I found another, better starter image from my NSX set and am much happier with the result:

Holy crap man that's a really nice image.

What size pole (set up ) are you using now to get that far back?

I am still new in Photoshop, I'm not sure if I follow you correctly
